Statement of Faith
USA Churches is pleased to have the opportunity to build up and support Christians of all denominations in finding a church home or place of worship using our Christian church directory. We recognize that doctrinal differences exist between different denominations. While certainly not all Christian churches are alike, they do share essential elements of Christian doctrine and practice. Our Statement of Faith, therefore, is a guideline for the basics of the Christian faith.
We believe in one living and true God, the Creator and Lord of the heavens and the earth. In the unity of the Godhead, there are three persons, of one substance, equal in power and eternity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ came down from heaven, was incarnated by the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life in perfect obedience to the Father, and was crucified for our sins. He suffered, died, and was buried, and he rose bodily from the dead on the third day. As the God-man, Jesus Christ ascended into heaven and now sits at the right hand of God the Father, interceding for his people. At his first coming, Jesus inaugurated the fulfillment of the Kingdom of God.
We believe that all men and women are sinners by nature and choice and are under condemnation. We are counted as righteous before God only by the merit of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, through faith in him alone, and not by our own works or deserving.
We believe in the divine inspiration, truthfulness, and authority of both the Old and New Testament Scriptures in their entirety, without error, in all they affirm, and as the only infallible rule for our faith and practice.
